The story of Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil is a young manufacturer. It has been in the igaming industry since 2013, yet it is the winner of many awards, and today it would be difficult to find an online casino that does not have their slots on offer. Expressed in numbers, this means that in the middle of 2021, Yggdrasil is already present in nearly 600 online casinos. Over the years, the company has managed to win 11 valuable awards, which are a huge recognition among online casino software developers. By these awards, we mean the recognitions of the "Gaming Awards" and "EGR", which include, for example, the software developer of the year in 2016 and 2017. Yggdrasil is committed to the development of regulated markets and currently has operators in 17 jurisdictions.

Our company represents entertainment responsibly, says Drasil. They are constantly working to make their games fun and safe. The games are developed for adult players only, targeting mostly experienced players who understand how slot machines work. Nothing proves that the industry regulations are in mind more than the fact that the company has been a member of the Swedish Gaming Association since 2020. As we know, gambling in Sweden is strictly regulated, including online casinos and their games.

What I really like about the company's official website: we can get accurate information about the slot machines found in online casinos. This is not limited to the fact that they write a volatility indicator, but we can familiarize ourselves with many other features, and we can also try the games in demo mode. This can be especially useful if you want to play one of the slot machines live in an online casino. Of course, this can also be done in the casinos, but here you can also read new news and find a detailed presentation about Ygg. Those who are more uninformed among the company's online casino games can select several features by placing a tick in the white box in front of the desired feature.

Drasil has always been a big fan of Nordic (Viking) themed games. Nowadays, many people are playing Viking Runes, a game released in 2021. Some people like these "symbols falling from the sky" games, we prefer traditional reel video slots to them. Such games from Ygg are Vikings go Berzerk or Vikings go Wild, for example. The latter two games are very similar in appearance and symbols, but there are differences in gameplay. Viking Runes is a completely different game in which runes tumble. Those chasing big prizes are happy to play this slot because the maximum amount that can be won is €1,000,000. The game works on all kinds of platforms and is supported by many browsers, and it should be noted that it is available in many languages, probably these features also contribute to its popularity. There is nothing extra in the appearance of the game, the symbols fall into the depths on a stone-carved board, which is guarded by a Viking warrior. in the background you can see statues carved from stone, or the night sky with stars. The snow keeps falling during the game. It is a cluster game, you can win with non-traditional winning lines, in which the runes fall on nine reels. Clusters mean that symbols touching each other in some way must form (each such cluster needs 6 identical symbols to win). The minimum bet on this game is 0.4 EUR and the maximum bet is 40 EUR. We can win 1600x our bet, the winning clusters can contain 6-41 identical runes. As is usually the case with games with similar mechanics, in the case of a winning cascade, it disappears and new runes arrive in their place. Thus, several winning cascades can be formed with one bet. The game also includes bonus features, which may include:

  • Winning cascades add glowing wilds to the board
  • 5 or more cascades unlock free rounds wilds, which substitute symbols and act as multipliers
  • random bonuses
  • the viking can remove the less valuable runes and shuffle the symbols for a bigger prize

The RTP of the game is 96.37%
Of course, this does not mean that we will definitely recover such a large part of our money even in the worst case. An interesting example of this is Bloodsuckers, a game from the popular Netent software manufacturer (due to its high RTP and low volatility) that can be found in every casino. This vampire-themed slot is on the no-roll bonus list at most online casinos due to the aforementioned features. On one occasion, out of curiosity, we tested whether the gameplay is really as smooth as they say. It wasn't. At first we quickly made a 4 EUR plus with a 0.2 EUR bet, but from then on it just consumed our bankroll non-stop. We were already down more than 50 EUR when we saw no point in pushing this game any further and switched to another video slot in the casino.

Returning to Yggdrasil's viking-themed games, we mentioned that, compared to the 2021 game, the casinos and the manufacturer's previous Viking games. Among them is the video slot Vikings go Berzerk released in November 2016. The predecessor of the game is the machine Vikings go Wild, released in 2015, but the later version was supplemented with many extra functions and thus became even more fun. Even compared to the previously mentioned low-volatility "bloodsuckers" slot, the game is more balanced. Even with a low bet, we can be in the red here, but by this time the anger of the Vikings will gather, and we can return to the original wheel pattern. Rage growth is an interesting feature of the game that can be tracked on a barometer-like gauge. Whenever one of the vikings results in a win, the rage always increases. The previous version was rated LOW-MEDIUM, and its successor go Berzerk is MEDIUM-HIGH, but we still like the game, which has an RTP of 96.1%. The number of paylines is 25, and the maximum amount that can be won is 500,000 EUR. The number of rows is 4, the number of reels is 5, and only the direction from left to right can result in a win. The symbols are 4 vikings, one of which is a girl, and four coin symbols. Three or more identical symbols must line up on a payline to win. If one of the vikings' rage meter is full, it goes into berzerk mode and the sticky wilds can come, resulting in a bigger prize. The game includes free spins, and hoarding the gold that appears on the fifth reel can result in an extremely high prize for us.

In the past, at the Sportingbull bookmaker, we participated several times in slot machine competitions, which were run under the name of endurance. The essence of these was that a bet of at least EUR 10 had to be made every day for 30 days. They gave us 5 jokers if we missed 5 days, and the "persistent" could share a large prize pool. He always got a few euros out of it. We usually played this game with Yggdrasil's slots, so we were able to keep our spending level with minimal fluctuations every day so that we didn't run into the red. Especially not to the extent that even the money received for persistence does not cover it. In the tournaments, which were not really tournaments, but pools, we most often participated with games called Orient Express, Wild Robo Factory, or Holmes.
